This month, Multnomah Whiskey Library raises a glass to Women’s History Month by satisfying people’s thirst with a first. It will contribute $1 or more from every single cocktail listed on every menu, including in The Green Room, to organizations and nonprofits specializing in environmental and social justice.
It’s the biggest expansion yet for the cocktail donation program, which has given more than $55,000 since it started in mid-2021.
The membership-based bar’s current lineup pops with exclusive drinks crafted by eight women, representing Portland’s rising stars and best mixology minds, led by MLW’s lead bartender Cody Mulcahy.
During our visit, we tried the rum and passionfruit forward Midnight at the Oasis; The Forager, crafted with vodka, apple brandy, marionberry, and egg white; Waving, Smiling, a toasted coconut bourbon with hints of date; and Say Quaaaat?! — an Irish whiskey and amontillado sherry concoction. All were delicious.
